Emergency Alerts are sent by emergency services to landline telephones based on the location of the handset, and to mobile phones, based on the service address. In the case of an emergency, you may receive a voice message on your landline or a text message on your mobile phone. If you receive an Emergency Alert and want more information, follow the instructions in the message or find your local emergency service on this website. Yes its the Govt Emergency No, and to all you Twats that think its an intrusion in your life, suggest you need to get one (a life that is). Really, have you nothing better to complain about. Probably the same Twats that think Covid is just a Flu. Suggest you hop on a Plane to the O'l USA where you can enjoy your freedoms and probably catch Covid and help raise the worlds IQ level. Caller: 0444 444 444
To 49er, in the time that it took you to bash out your trivial tirade you could've: a) stopped and considered what this text service actually is [hint: it's a potential lifesaving alert]; b) considered how they got your number [they didn't - it'll work on a triangulation basis or similar]; c) how often they contact you (not often at all), d) considered finding something more worthwhile to get frothy about. Just a suggestion.
Emergency Broadcast Notification Does luke bonner still work at radio 2gb. I got a message about a missing child and when i searched online there was actual news about the missing child on australian online news My Mum received a text message saying she is COVID positive! She hasn’t been tested and rarely goes anywhere; ?????? This number is for emergency purposes. That there's an emergency within the area you are from and people within the vicinity should be cautious. You should be grateful that you are given a warning. Funny that there are lots of "Karens" out there... keeps complaining and yet getting money from the government. Get a lifr people. This is definately what that number should be used for to save lives Get out of my life. I have NEVER asked for your 'service' and find it intrusive and objectionable.
I will decide if and when I need to plan for whatever emergency there might be.
Block the number.

Not sure if this 0444 444 444 is a legitimate emergency, government services (fire, health, etc) number.
That message did not come from Emergency Alert and is not used to contact individuals I received an SMS from this number this evening. I have not seen the number before, had no idea who it was and bearing in mind there are so many nasty individuals out there sending emails and messages wanting to SCAM the unwary and vulnerable members of our society, you will understand why I deleted it just in case I ended up with a $1000 phone bill.
